COLUMBUS, OH — It is with great sadness that the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians announces the death of Board Member Dr. Craig Manifold.

Dr. Manifold was an invaluable member of the EMS community and was an especially cherished member of the National Registry family having served on our Board of Directors since 2014. Additionally, he was the Past Chair of the National Registry’s Research Committee and its International Committee.

“We knew Dr. Manifold as a gentle leader, a persistent advocate and trusted member of the national EMS community,” said Heather Davis, Chair of the Board of Directors for the National Registry. “More importantly, though, he was our friend and I ask that you keep Dr. Manifold’s family in your dearest thoughts and prayers.”

Dr. Manifold served the EMS community in many roles – as the Medical Director of NAEMT, the Medical Director in San Antonio and an assistant professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He served on many boards, both in Texas and nationwide. Dr. Manifold served on the South Texas Regional Advisory Council (STRAC), American College of Emergency Physicians, and Governors EMS and Trauma Advisory Committee.

Having earned the rank Brigadier General (Retired), Dr. Manifold also served as Joint Surgeon for the Texas Air National Guard, and Commander for the 149th Medical Group of the Texas Air National Guard in San Antonio.

The National Registry offers its condolences to the family of Dr. Craig Manifold, his friends, colleagues and all the organizations to whom he contributed so much during his career.
